Crystal Palace vs Southampton Betting Predictions and Odds
Do the Saints underline the away strength of the Eagles?
From this weekend the ball will be rolling again in the motherland of football. The first day of the Premier League season 2020/21 is taking place, and no spectators are allowed yet. Only in October, a few fans should gradually return to the stadium. One of the games on matchday one is the duel between Crystal Palace and Southampton at Selhurst Park.
In the past 2019/20 season, the form curve of the two teams was completely different. In the fall, the Eagles were significantly stronger than Southampton before this completely turned in the 2020 calendar year. After the short summer break, the Hasenhüttl wants to prolong the strong 2020 form.
If the bookmakers have their way, according to the current betting odds, the guests are traded as a slight favorite. In the betting base odds comparison below, between Crystal Palace and Southampton, you can find odds of around 2.40 for the guests.
In addition to the preview for this duel, the other games on the first matchday are also analyzed in the popular Premier League category. There is also a short compact preview for the 1st Premier League matchday.

Crystal Palace – Statistics & Current Form
The team from the capital has been represented in the English football upper house for eight years. The team has been able to establish itself in the midfield and has set the course for relegation relatively early in recent years. With veteran Roy Hodgson there is a trainer on the bench who still knows the old school. Ball possession football, high counter-pressing, and ambush-like vertical play are not seen in the Eagles.
The disastrous end of the season
Rather, the main focus is on your defense and you can almost feel sorry for the offensive players because there are not many points of play in the opposing half. Accordingly, few goals are celebrated, in the past 2019/20 season only 31 goals were scored, most of them from standards (corners, penalties).
In the end, Crystal Palace took 14th place in the Premier League table, but a single-digit placement would have been possible. But the end of the season was disastrous for the Eagles. In the last eight Premier League games, the team suffered seven defeats and only won one point. In general, 16 points in 18 Premier League games in the 2020 calendar year (4-4-10 balance) mean the worst value of all teams.
In addition to superstar Wilfried Zaha, the Ghanaian Jordan Ayew is a bearer of hope. If Abedi’s grandson meets Pele, Crystal Palace does not lose. In the past season, he was successful eleven times in nine games (seven wins, two draws).
A home game at the start of the new season should be an advantage to start the season with a good result. This is by no means the case with Crystal Palace, who has started six times in the Premier League with a home game but have not yet won (two draws, four defeats). For the last home win on the first day of play in the top division, you have to go back a long way, in the 1971/72 season, this was the case.
Probable formation of Crystal Palace:
↳ Guaita – van Aanholt, Sakho, Tomkins, Ward – Townsend, Milivojevic, Kouyate, McArthur – Zaha, Ayew

Southampton – Statistics & Current Form
Who would have thought on October 25, 2019, that the fans of Southampton would text a song of praise for the Austrian head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl? After the 9-0 home defeat against Leicester City, he was on the brink of failure, but trust was given to him and the team from the south of England managed to turn around.
The outstanding year 2020
On matchday 17, the team was relegated for the last time before the big comeback began and the 2019/20 season finally ended in eleventh place. Especially in the 2020 calendar year, the Saints collected several counters. Nine of the 18 Premier League games in 2020 ended with a win, a total of 30 points were collected, making it the sixth-best value.
The numbers are even more impressive when Southampton has to compete as a guest. At St. Mary’s Stadium things rarely went as they wanted, on the other hand, only champions Liverpool and runners-up Manchester City were more successful than the Saints. Because of this strength away from home, the tip on the guests on Saturday afternoon between Crystal Palace and Southampton is worth considering.
Guaranteed success Danny Ings
The outstanding player of the past season was national player Danny Ings, who scored no fewer than 22 goals and thus only missed the club’s internal record by James Beattie (23 goals in 2002/03). Ings also feels much more comfortable abroad, having scored twelve times in 14 Premier League away games in 2019/20. The best bookmakers deliver odds of around 2.00 on Saturday for his goal.
Probable formation of Southampton:
↳ McCarthy – Bertrand, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Walker-Peters – Redmond, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Djenepo – Ings, Obafemi
Last matches from Southampton:
⚽ 07/26 2020 Southampton 3 – 1 Sheffield United
